Help tips needed, peacock bass just layed eggs.

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

lately i've notice my 2 peacock bass cleaning one of the flat rocks in the tank and I thought they might be breeding. A couple days later and ive noticed about 200 little eggs on the rock. please help I need to know what to do. Do I take them out of the tank? Will the parents eat them? What to feed them,how when etc?

There's a good chance the eggs may not be fertilised and will get covered in fungus. Once that happens they'll just float off in the tank.

However, if they are fertilised and you have enough air in the tank, they may hatch. This usually happens on the 3rd day.

On the 10th day they'll be free swimming and you'll need to start feeding them baby brine shrimp. You'll have to hatch the BBS yourself. You need to feed them at least twice a day.

In other words it's hard yakka trying to raise peacock bass, have fun.
